Over all Review of Canon EOS 550 D SLR Kit (EF S18-55IS)

Canon EOS 550 D SLR Kit (EF S18-55IS) Price

Overall Review

For newbie and professional alike, Canon EOS 550 D Kit (EF S18-55IS) camera is the camera to have. The camera sports a 18.0MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor, giving the camera the right type of processing mechanism. Due to its fresh technology the camera gives you smooth, precise and high defined images. The camera also comes with a good build and a 3 inched LCD monitor which is fantastic to view photos and read the easy accessible menu. The camera also very much capable of HD video shooting at 1080p and adjustable frame rates! The end result of which is fabulous movies that can be reviewed on HDTV’s via its given HDMI terminal. The camera also comes with an additional microphone jacket. And other of plenty features (Portrait, landscape etc) that any beginner would love to play around. High ISO is another prominent feature, enabling high speed and low light environment shooting. With all this and more the camera is for you to have.


Design and Build Quality

Canon EOS 550 D is ergonomic and well built in all, with a metal frame on making it suitable for handling. The shape and exterior appearance is almost same with a slight difference of the front insignia and a few additional buttons around the rare of the camera. Due to its special design there are little chances of dust accumulating while you change lens and hence reduce deteriorating image quality. The body feels secure and solid when you hold it out. The controls are placed where traditionally they should be but are a bit small, if you have big hands, you might come across them as that. The mode dial is easy to navigate through and with the accessible dedicated buttons, it is easy to access the most commonly used functions making it rather very beginner friendly. The camera weighs 47g, which is good for a DSLR and with dimension 128.8 x 97.5 x 75.3 mm.

Focus and Face Detection

Canon EOS 550 D gives you 63-zone layer metering sensor that analyzes focus, color and luminance info to give you precise and sustained metering. This with the data AF system takes care of exposure system. This is smart focus that works for your ease. The dual layers consist of one the red and green and the second blue and red. The design is such that allows processing to adjust the intensity of the different spectrum’s band and analyze proper exposure. Canon 550D also provides you with semi automatic and fully manual exposure modes and many scene modes that include Portrait, Macro, Sports, Landscape, Night Portrait, No flash etc, this makes the camera beginner friendly White balance too can be used manually or put on auto. Custom settings lastly caters 12 custom functions with 36 settings. As for face detection, the live view maintains the face priority and the possibility of 5 – 10 fold increases the image to produce sharp manual focus

Lens and Image Stabilization

Probably, the most important part of the device is the lens that mounts on it, and is also the most expensive part. In this review, the lens mount discussed is Canon EF-S 18-55mm, well this lens mount is mostly or maybe totally plastic exception is the glass mounted on it. There are quite too many advantages of this construction like loss of unnecessary weight brought along with the lens, and obviously the reduction of cost. The meagre manual focusing ring is scarcely usable and is located on the end of the expansion objective end of the lens. There is no USM focusing motor in Canon EF-S 18-55mm which means there is no FTM focusing. Even without USM, Focussing of this device is not slow or loud. This lens is certainly not the most epic lens ever made by Canon but is just fine for its targeted audience.

Screen and Menus

Comprising of a 3-inch, 3:2 aspect ratio TFT color liquid crystal screen with 1,040,000 dot pixels, Canon EOS 550 D stands out for it’s beautiful and clear screen. The screen in dual action is anti-reflection and anti smudge. Can also zoom to 10X while playback. The viewfinder for this one is however a tad small, which makes manual focusing difficult but the live view implementation helps. The Pentamirror viewfinder does cover 95% of the frame capable 0.87x magnification. Lastly, shifting to live view mode you can use the real time visuals to shoot from difficult angles.


The camera can take up to 4 GB of continuous video or shots. It supports SD/SDHC/SDXC cards coupled with a lithium ion LP-E8 rechargeable battery. It can record for 26 minutes and 59 seconds or take 440 shots. The strength is good for days of shooting, something enthusiasts will appreciate.

Video Mode

Canon EOS 550 D is a first in its DSLR’s class to have an exceptional full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution video recording feature. By an easy switch of the mode dial to instant movie recording you can start/stop making videos. The camera caters to the creative type by giving a full manual control feature in shooting mode with selectable frame rates, like high speed movies of 50 to 60fps at 720 p, especially when the action is very quick for your capture. Focusing can be done while video recording by pressing the shutter halfway, with an effective 7x zoom. The movies can also be cropped! Using part of the sensor and hence enabling long distance shooting without the havoc of changing lenses. The end result of these videos is clean and accurate. After you’re done recording, the videos can be previewed on your TV all thanks to the built in HDMI terminal provided for your photos and videos playback. The resolution is automatically configured when it’s connected to any HDTV for best results.


Canon EOS 550 D comes with a 18 megapixel CMOS optical sensor and the DIGIG 4 processor. The camera stands out with Its dual DIGIC 4’s that sports for you an incredible burst speed shoots. The camera uses a standard 3;2 aspect ratio which comes as very suitable for enthusiasts and armatures. This leading class sensor captures accurate, clear and high resolution images even in low lit conditions and high speed. The CMOS sensor is further idea for print size photos or cropped images since it retains its quality. While the DIGIC 4 aids in smooth gradations and more natural appealing photos. The ability to record HD videos, quick start up, instant near image shooting etc all vouch for the processor. The ISO furthermore is reachable to 6400 and can be expanded 12800.


The camera comes with a lot of plus, starting from its full manual control in movie mode to the increased ISO sensitivity. The excellent LC screen and the preppy additional external mic input.


The camera does not offer selectable RAW sizes and unfortunately caters a small view finder comparatively.
